Pedal Peak for Business Grants

Do you run a small business in Derbyshire that could benefit from making it easier to cycle in the area?

The Peak District National Park Authority is operating a grants scheme as part of the Pedal Peak for Business initiative to support Derbyshire businesses to offer good quality experiences for all types of cyclists and stimulate the cycling economy.

The fund will provide 50% towards the expenditure for small-scale projects which will help create cycle friendly places that meet the needs of residents, day visitors and touring cyclists. Cycle friendly places will encourage residents and visitors to explore the area on two wheels, whilst contributing more to the local economy, and complement other aspects of a place’s tourism.

Examples of the kinds of things that could be funded include secure cycle parking at a cafe or holiday accommodation, purchase of tools for loan, street bike pumps built into public bike parking sites or links in network of bike paths. Eligible business are those with less than 250 employees who are based in specific areas of Derbyshire.

This pot of money is part of othe authority's successful bid to the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) Growing and Developing the Visitor Economy Sector within Derbyshire.
